Washi Tape

I discovered washi tape. Washi tape pretty much feels like masking tape. It originated in Japan. Its made of natural fibers, such as bamboo or hemp, but most commonly from the bark of trees that are native to Japan. Washi tape comes in different sizes, color and patterns. I got mine on etsy and I did google it and seen some on ebay. You can pretty much use the tape for anything, home decor, making cards, crafting, party decor etc. Pinterest has so much ideas on what the tape can be used for. Today I used it on my Bath and Body works candle jar that I have on my craft desk for some of my tools, I also decorated my Iphone/ Ipad charger.

Had to try it for myself.

I love to watch youtube videos about products out there. I heard some really good reviews about the Macadamia Oil repair masque so i decided to give it a try. I can never find the right products for my hair. I have thick curly hair. so i figured i would go on a hunt to find something that i really like. I also ordered some organic products for my hair that i got on hope i love my new products.

Bath and Body Works

Hi guys. So about a year now iv'e been obsessed with Bath and Body works candles. I feel in love with the scent Pomegranate Lemonade at first and now I love most of the scents they come out with. I live in Hawaii so at first I bought them online because we didn't have a store here. I actually make my bath and body works purchases online instead of going into the store that we have here now. I feel if I went into the store I would pick up more than I need. So every time I buy online I only buy when they have a sale and when I have a coupon code. Shipping to hawaii is way more and the shipping specials they have sometimes don't apply to hawaii and so other places. I kind of take a risk because I don't get to smell it first before I buy, but I watch Youtube videos and people do reviews on what they like and I read the description. Out of all the scents I purchased, only one I didn't like so I gave it to my mom and she loves it.
So after my fist candle was all burned out I debated on what I could use the jar for. I seen a picture online of a glass cloche for jewelry and thought it was so beautiful. I checked how much they were and to me it cost to much. So I went on youtube to watch a video on how to clean the jars. My first batch of candles consist of maybe 4 jars. I boiled a pot of water and poured the hot water into the jar, let the wax come to the and poured it into a bucket, carefully I removed the metal piece that holds the wicker, clean the glue that holds the wicker, wiped the jar with a paper towel, scraped the paper at the bottom, remove the label, the jar is still a little hot so its makes it easy to remove these things. If the jar still has a little wax in it you can use Goo Gone and it makes all the leftover wax come off instantly.
I used my jar for my bracelets, q-tips, flowers and I had some small candle jars that I used for rubber bands. It looks really nice.
